Now I enjoy symphonic music, or Classical music, whichever you prefer; but I have a difficult time to attend symphonic events because it is just to sit-still for me. I dose, I know, my bad!
I enjoy my classical music - at home - turned up loud - while I am doing projects or housekeeping. Maybe if I knew more about music I could sit and appreciate it. I'm a bit of a metal head too, but I don't sit still and listen to that either.
Anyway, we went to the performance of the 3 finalists in this piano competition; young men all, 21, 22, and 25 years old. A Colombian a Mexican, and a Cuban. They were amazing, and yes, my head did dip a few times.
The audience were given sheets on which we could vote our favorite. I have to say that it would have been easier if the music were of similar style and effort. The first two performances were a Schumann and a Chopin, with similar qualities, but the third piece was a Prokofiev, - and so different, and if forced to choose, I didn't last night because as I said I just don't know enough about music, but for me, and for Tom, the young Colombian, Wilson Esteban Labrador Lopez stole the show ~ They each were/are each incredibly talented, but the music and the intensity of the Prokofiev piece just made it more dynamic.
